Compass Learning Tutorial

How to Create a Class
1. Click on Compass Icon in Novell Apps Launcher 2. Log in using your name and “x” as password 3. At this screen click on Compass button and then click run.


4. From this Compass Learning management screen choose File then “new”.

5. Choose “class” then click OK.

6. Type each student’s name: first name, space, last name then hit ENTER. (repeat until all students’ names are entered. Kelly Parsons always added a few non- students by typing your name with a “z” in front of it. i.e. Karen Zdailey then Karen ZZdailey, etc. so they’d be at bottom of your list and you could go in and change the name easily when new students came in)

7. After all the students’ names have been entered go to File then Save. Be sure to include your name when naming the class. Click “Save” again.
